From time to time, we all experience our own form of “writers block”. The words (and work) stop flowing, as we find ourselves faced with that invisible, impervious “wall”. We might be working too hard or lingered too long solving a specific problem. Whatever the scenario — inspiration is absent.
As we know, changing gears completely can lead to a breakthrough (Read more about the Eureka Phenonmena here.) Listening to a great piece of music, can affect this gridlock — setting our minds in motion, in an entirely different direction.
Here are six pieces of music that might take you away from the pressure, and lead your mind toward a more productive, fluid space. I happen to find these selections helpful. However, I would love to know what you queue up when energy is running low. Share them with us here.
A little extra inspiration never hurt.
Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve:
What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong:
Clocks by Coldplay:
The Best is Yet to Come by Frank Sinatra:

For me i need no words to break my concentration but Armstrong was great Cold Play was entertaining the rest is not good for me. I always have a background music on as I work but it is classical or jazz and no words just music.
Good advice, and nice selections. I’m glad I found your blog.
